We return to our James Bond series with the first of only two Bond outings by Timothy Dalton – The Living Daylights! Chrys VanDerKamp returns as our guest to decide for herself where Dalton falls in the “who is the best Bond” debate. Tim and Melissa are both Dalton apologists as he is frequently viewed as one of the worst actors to play the role (but he’s no George Lazenby). We talk about why we think Dalton is underrated in the role and also why everyone disagrees on which Dalton film is the best. Melissa prefers this one. Tim prefers License To Kill. Melissa won…this time!
Next up – we are going to follow Timothy Dalton to Hot Fuzz!
